Families Bloom with Love

Spring is in the air thanks to My Mind's Eye Now & Then FotoBella Bundle!  I found some great gardening photos to pair with the collection of my kids planting flowers with their Dad.

The colors of this collections are really soft & pretty and pair perfectly with my photos.  

One of my favorites is the floral paper, which I fussy cut the flowers out of for embellishing.  

And those cute chipboard banners I just love also.  I incorporated the banners with phrases to create a caption for the layout, "Love Saturday Fun."  

Ooh and that gold stripe washi tape is fabulous! Can't wait to add this layout to my album.

Bo Bunny Baby Bump Layout

I've been drooling over Bo Bunny's Baby Bump Collection since it debuted!  One because it's gorgeous and two because I'm drowning in baby pictures!  There are a few preggie pics floating around that this collection was made for!  But don't think I'll be posting those, ha!  

FotoBella has Baby Bump in the I Want It All Bundle and I was ecstatic when I got the box of goodies to work with.  You should see the Ephemera package alone!  Gorgeous goodies in there!  You can check out some of those yummy Ephemera contents in my layout today.  

I've got a full tutorial on FotoBella's blog on how to make this layout yourself.  FotoBella has BoBunny's Baby Bump I Want It All Bundle so pop over to the website to get yours!

Have a fabulous day!

Inspired By Pinterest

Happy Friday!  It's Inspired By Pinterest day with Kiwi Lane Designs today!  We have been partnered up with We R Memory Keepers this month and it's been so much fun.  

Here is the pin that inspired me: 

I found the layout done on the diagonal very intriguing.

I took that inspiration and created a double layout, placing the photos on an angle and pairing it with the Chevron design templates.  

Tiny Accents templates made for great embellishments and went well with the We R Memory Keepers Hip Hip Hooray Collection.  

Hope this inspires you!

Have a fabulous day!

Hello My Name is beautiful

Checkout my newest favorite My Mind's Eye Collection, Now and Then Mildred.  This FotoBella bundle is full of such beautiful eye candy.  All of which it seems found its way into this layout!

I've got an assortment of the Mixed Bag pieces here.

I just had to use the fun enamel shapes-hearts & brackets.

This turned out to be such a fun layout and all the phrases capture my little girl's personality.  I love the photo.  The sun just happened to be peeking through the trees making look like she was holding it in her hand!  Looks awesome!

Hope you have a fabulous day!

Kiwi Lane Blog Hop

 Welcome to today's blog hop!  Oh, it should be so much fun checking out everyone's fabulous projects and seeing different ways to use the designer templates.  I'm sharing a layout featuring the Tiny Floral and Tiny Sweetheart templates.

I combined two collections for this layout:  Simple Stories Fabulous and Echo Park's Sweetest Day.  I was digging through my stash and came across these gems!  As you can see the color  scheme and patterns work very well together.

I absolutely LOVE the fun flowery patterns!  Especially the Kiwi Lane flowers!

I had such a great little model for these photos!  G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!  and I love the layout also ;)

So much flowery cuteness I just can't stand it!  And I must say the layout came together like a breeze thanks to Kiwi Lane's templates!  Frame it up, cut it out and glue it down.  Simple as that!  

Now keep hopping through the list, and be sure to leave comments at every stop.  

A random winner from ONE of the participating blogs (including the Kiwi Lane blog), will be given a$25 gift certificate to the Kiwi Lane Shop, for leaving a comment and will be announced on the Kiwi Lane blog on Thursday, MARCH 13TH.
